What's your biggest regret in life

Hi We all make decisions everyday, from what to have for breakfast to deciding what to do with our lives, more study or work! So has anybody made a life changing decision that they regret. Mine is moving to my MILs. She has pestered us to move in with her for about 4 years, this past spring things came to a head. The place we were renting was falling down round our ears, the owner refused to do repairs, our business was going from bad to worse and MIL had to go into hospital. So I thought that it would be good to move in with her, help her out a bit and save us some money. But things haven't worked out all. She promised that she would convert the garage into a granny flat so we could have the house, it's only two bedrooms and there are 6 in my family. She went back on that promise, no problem we worked round it. Then she said she would pay the bills we should buy the food, but the padt two months she has been asking for money for the electric bill. In November my husband was hospitalised for a month with heart and kidney failure. When he got out of hospital he told her that he wouldn't be able to work with her, the work is heavy farming work and my husband can only walk for about 10mins a day. She has been so angry since then that she hasn't spoken to us at all. I realise now that what she wanted was no her family herem but somebody to work for her. I really regret moving here, my kids are suffering her verbal abuse almost everyday, she won't talk to us but if something is wrong the whole neighbourhood gets to hear about it! So anybody out there with big regrets? Jacks

well i think my largest regret in life would be dating a guy around 4 years back... i went wround with him for around 3 years.....i wonder how now... i wasted such important part of my life doing absolutely nothing for 3 years while in the relationship with him....which actually changed everything about me..... he was like a thug..... he wouldnt speak straight with anyone...whether its friend or foe.... he would talk in a threatening tone all the time.... so much of air in the way he talks its unbelievable and started becoming a joke later cos later people came to realise that he was just all talk no walk kind of thing..... and i realised a little too late that this guy isnt the one for me....if i stayed with him for a little longer i would only be spoiling my own goals in life....so i decided to let go .... but he decided to hold on... he wouldnt let go for the life of anything..... he harrassed me and my family for a couple of months....especially my mom and best friend.... started threatening me..... threatening my friends..... i got totally fed up with his behaviour and moved to a different state...thinking he would stop but he called me there too a couple of times and spoke bad with my uncle..... then i dont know what happened one day ..i guess he realised that what he was doing wasnt right on his part and so one day sent me an online message sayng that he is sorry for what he did and asked me to forigve him which i wouldnt be able to do till i die cos the damage he has done is going to stay with me a lifetime..... i woudl never be able to trust that man again..... and why should i ? i dont need to trust him anymore.....
